I challenge the idea of making music into visual and three dimensional forms. Being a musician myself, I have played and listened to music from a young age. The possibility of translating a piece of music that is personal into a tactile and wearable medium excites me.

My work is inspired by pieces of music that I have played as a musician, which have enriched and given meaning to my life. I create my own form of graphic notation from the traditional musical scores of these pieces. I then stack the graphic shapes like staves and roll them up like scrolls of music to create statement wearable pieces.

Thus far, the main material of the work is in paper as that is the material a score of music is read and interpreted from. I use a special type of paper called ‘Japanese linen card’ which gives a beautiful finish to each piece. The paper is laser cut and carefully assembled to mirror the musical sequence of each score.

I plan to develop my work in such a way that it can be used in different settings, either as an individual designer and maker or as a collaborator with other musicians, composers and artists. Having started on this path, I can see an enormous potential to realize other possibilities. I plan to continue exploring and developing my ideas through the medium of music, Jewellery design and sculpture.
